I dont mind either way.......do it if you like it....its not up to me

many times after I come home from a game or a bar I say to myself...dude you shouldn't have said that..or did that...but I did it and its to late now !

 

I don't like it after we score a goal because I'd rather we be showing support for our team during that time.  I'd rather be yelling "What a shot Henrique!" or "Way to go guys!" instead of "you suck".

 

Any other time during the game, I'm more than happy to tell the opposition that they suck.  Out of 100 goals the Devils score, you might catch me chanting "You Suck" twice or even less.  On very rare occasions do I partake in the chant.

Except it really was just about 1 rich guy trying to make it stop. Only a very small percentage of the fan base appeared to actively detest the chant to the point of wanting the goal song changed. I never heard a devils fan, before the new owner came in, say that he/she wished rnr2 would be removed (aside from the pedo crap). Our society is so full of debate debate debate that everything just has to have two equal amounts of proponents to an issue. So it appears that the anti you suck ppl are in greater numbers than they actually are.

I don't really care about the chant and in fact I've partaken in it many times. But it's clear on this message board that there is a significant enough portion of the fan base who have asked that it stop and so I defer to their wishes.

When a significant enough amount of people have a problem with something and it's within reason, it's easier and better for everybody to just stop doing it. When people refuse, I'm glad ownership stepped in and did something about it.

Well if you read through the thread, you would see which side I'm clearly on.  And when I posted that one statement, I never actually supported or condoned the "You suck" chant.  Notice how I qualified it by saying "I have a confession to make."?  I'm not playing both sides of the fence as you say.  It's more like I had an instance of poor judgment that I thought I would share.  I'm prone to alcohol much like anybody else here.

That doesn't make you not a hypocrite. You campaigned as hard as anyone that the chant needed to go, then you took part yourself.

In addition to that, "I have a confession to make..." is not a qualifying statement and using one, even if you had correctly, would not make it less hypocritical.

Jesus....back off McCoy  :wacko:  He did it, alcohol was alluded to (which probably plays a part among others who do) and that was that. I'm thinking he recognizes how silly it is BY partaking in it, which is more then i can say for those that continue to do so.

I'm not sure how to interpret what you're saying. The words could mean anything. You being sarcastic?

Maybe it came across as too cold and from the wrong angle. Sorry, it didn't appeal to you.

I know.  But my overall point still stands though.

Hey why didnt we just have a poll on this?

 

A) The chant is no good, and has to go

B) The chant is OK and should stay

 

instead of 80 pages of ping-ponging insults

And many of us disagree with the logic behind it. But it doesn't matter, it's irrelevant. People will cheer what they want to cheer (or not cheer at all) and will continue to do so until ownership starts throwing people out.

Lock this sh!t up, I think we're done here

There's a lot of people in between though.  There are people who like the song, but don't like the chant for example.

yeah..but now the song has been changed (like it or not) so the only issue is the "chant"
